T20 World Cup, Pakistan vs Scotland Highlights

23:03 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Shoaib Malik is the Player of the Match

"As we have seen in previous games, if you don't lose early wickets you have a chance of putting a good total in the end. We were discussing in our dressing room to at least get 150 and not give too many wickets early on. If you are playing on a good strip, the goal is to take a couple of balls and then start playing your game. On these tracks, you take 6-8 balls and then start playing your game. You take all the confidence going deep in the tournament. Yes i'm in good form but I want to see myself more consistent to help the team. Overall, feel fit. We have to give our best shot."

22:57 (IST)07 Nov 2021
PAK win by 72 runs

So then. Pakistan are assured of a victory now. Haris rauf bowls a wide ball to begin the last over. And the 6th wicket goes. Dragged on into the wicket and Greaves walks. Rauf gets a wicket. Dot ball to follow.  2 runs off the 4th and 5th balls. Last ball now. And it's one run. Pakistan move to the top of the table. PAK win by 72 runs and they will face Australia next in the semifinals.

22:49 (IST)07 Nov 2021
19th gone

Afridi comes to bowl his last over and Pakistan's penultimate over. Just 2 off the first 4 balls. Match well and truly over. And to pile on the pressure, there's a wicket. But no, it's a No ball. Drama. Free hit yields just 1. 6 off the 19th over. SCO 114/5 after 19 overs.

22:44 (IST)07 Nov 2021
100 up for Scotland, 50 for Berrington

18th over starts. Hasan Ali to end his spell with this one. And is this a catch by Rizwan behind the wicket? Umpires checking if the catch is clean. Soft signal is not out. And yes, it's bounced just in front of Rizwan's gloves. It's already the 18th and Scotland are struggling to reach hundred. And as I was typing, Berrington has hit a monster and brought Scotland's 100. Picked it up early and got his weight forward and swung through the line to deposit it over long-on. And 50 up for Berrington. SCO 108/5 after 18 overs.

22:38 (IST)07 Nov 2021
A welcome 4

And Haris Rauf to bowl the 17th over.  Berrington hits a 4. Great Shot. It was angling into him at pace, he uses that pace to sweep it hard and fine through backward square leg. Is this gone? Pakistan are reviewing. It's pitched outside leg too and is going further down. Not out. 10 off this over. SCO 97/5 after 17 overs.

22:30 (IST)07 Nov 2021

Afridi in to bowl the 16th over. And he starts with a wide. And he swings the arm and it goes for a four. Berrington gets a thick edge that flies past Rizwan to his right. He had no chance of getting there even with a dive. And Afridi shatter Leask's stumps. SCO 87/5 after 15.4 overs.

22:26 (IST)07 Nov 2021
15th over gone

15th over starts. Scotland have hit some boundaries but it looks tough from here. The last over went for 10 runs. Just 6 off it. It's all academic from here. SCO 81/4 after 15 overs.

22:17 (IST)07 Nov 2021

Expensive over by Hasan Ali as he got hit by Berrington for two boundaries. The first one came out of short pitch delivery and the second one was dispatched over mid-wicket. Scotland 65/4 after 13 overs.

22:08 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Back to back wickets

Shadab Khan comes back for his spell and gets two wickets and the first one to get out was Munsey and the second one to depart was Dylan Budge who got bowled by the googly. Scotland 43/4 after 11 overs.

22:04 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Matthew Cross got run out by Imad Wasim

Matthew Cross was lazy as he was pottering outside the crease and Scotland lose a wicket out of nowhere.Image

21:51 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Bowled by Hasan Ali

Scotland skipper was exposing his stumps and got bowled. It was an unpleasant exit for the skipper as he was looking to play a release shot and got his middle stump blown away.

21:40 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Excellent over by Rauf

The birthday boy Rauf is brought into the attack for the 5th over. Good over thus far. 3 off the over so far. Good pace. A bouncer to end. Another excellent over by Pakistan. SCO 23/0 after 5 overs.

21:34 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Great over by Wasim

Fourth over begins with Wasim on the attack. 3 back to back dots to start this one. Good bowling. One off the 4th ball. Finally a run in this over. Just that 1 off this over. SCO 21/0 after 4 overs.

21:31 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Munsey gets going

And Shaheen has bowled a wide to start the third over. Followed by a no ball. Free hit but just 1 off it. No real damage done. And an excellent shot by Munsey. Makes room and smashes a 146ks length delivery through covers. 8 off the over. SCO 19/0 after 3 overs.

21:25 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Coetzer off the mark with a 4

Wasim to bowl to the Scotland skipper. And a 4 to long off. Excellent batting. Great technique and execution. Comes forward to slash it past extra cover. 6 off the over. SCO 11/0 after 2 overs.

21:21 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Chase begins

George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer to open, and Shaheen Afridi for Pakistan to start the attack. A wide is Scotland's first run on the board as the previous 2 balls went for dots. And a 4 off the 4th ball. It's up and over by Munsey. 5 off the over ultimately. SCO 5/0 after 1 over.

PAK post 189/4

The last over of the innings coming up. Greaves to bowl. 2 runs to start. And a 6 by Malik. Dug into the pitch again but Malik has been expecting that, so he's hanging on the back foot, rocks back further and unleashes violence on the ball, pulling it over deep backward square leg. And a 4 to follow. Pull shot, flat and into ther gap. And yes, another 6. Malik is on fire. Last ball left. What is he going to do? And a wide. Pressure mounting. And a 6 to finish this over. PAK post 189/4 after 20 overs.

21:00 (IST)07 Nov 2021
Shoaib explosive

The 19th over starts and Pakistan have the dangerous Asif Ali on the crease and on strike. And 1 run to start. 2 off the second ball. And Malik is hellbent on taking the spotlight for himself. Huge 6. Goes downtown and it disappears into the stand. And a 6 to end the over. Blasted over the long-on boundary low and flat. PAK 163/4 after 19 overs.
